Smoky Quartz occurs all over the world. Water clear high luster gemmy smokey is highly sought after and somewhat rare.
Switzerland is perhaps most known for the standard of top grade Smoky Quartz, but quite a few other localities can challenge Swiss Smoky Quartz. Malawi in particular has what we believe to be the best Smokey Quartz on earth! Also Mulanje and Zomba both produce great clarity.
